Maldivesis a country ofSouth Asia, situated in theIndian Ocean, south-southwest ofIndia. It consists of approximately 1,190 coralislandsgrouped in a double chain of 26atolls, spread over roughly 90,000 square kilometers, making this one of the most disparate countries in the world. Composed of livecoral reefsandsand bars, the atolls are situated atop a submarine ridge 960 kilometers long that rises abruptly from the depths of theIndian Oceanand runs from north to south.
The warm seas of Maldives have high visibility throughout the year, with water clear enough to see the passing fish as far as fifty metres away at times. Add to that the marvellous formation of over 3000 coral reefs and the free flowing tides of the monsoons. The result of these perfect conditions have created one of the world’s richest diving coral reef areas.
Over a thousand species of fish and other underwater creatures inhabit the Maldivian waters. The monsoon tides of the Indian Ocean create a collection of small marine creatures as well as microscopic plant cells. This in turn creates a hub for all kinds of underwater species who gather in these waters lured by
the abundance of food. In the Maldives you will get to see everything. From tiny shrimp and groups of colourful swimmers to the magnificent mantas and sharks, a careful eye will give you enough to enrapture you for a lifetime.
